At the Purple Giraffe
Namine picked out her outfit for her upcoming fashion show!
Namine’s appointment to see the eye doctor went well. Her vision has actually improved since last time.
World Theater Day
So I missed it by a day. Apparently it was World Theater Day yesterday. Well, better late than never.
A wild ride
Namine likes to push the little shopping carts they have in grocery stores. They can be a little uncontrollable sometimes, though. (Sounds kind of like a ten year old I know.)
Yelling at police
We went to the mall and encountered some accessibility ignorance.
New bed frame
Even since we got Namine a new bed four years ago, we left it on the floor. Well, not anymore: now it has a frame.
Namine and her friends from ballet class spent the afternoon at StoneFire Pizza.
Dance studios and disability
Ellen Stumbo (whose blog you should be reading anyway, she’s excellent) writes about her negative experience in attempting to enroll her daughter who has Down Syndrome in dance class. (As usual, I have plenty to say on the topic too.)
I had a professor who was triggered by job titles. It inspired a comic.
To serve tennis
Namine learned to serve in her tennis lesson, and then played (and won) a match against her coach. (Ten points to the Hogwarts house of your choice if you got the reference.)
AFO lift sizes
A little bit about Namine’s leg braces. The more you know
I used to say Namine is “wheelchair-bound,” but now I am more careful with my words. Now I say she uses a wheelchair. It doesn’t bind her, it gives her more freedom.
